discuss defense contractors. a look at the urging of politics, and a george mason university professor on the sake of the u.s. housing market. host: several stores focusing on the battleground state of ohio. president obama with a five piont lead. president clinton hinting an arm of al qaeda was behind the attacks. a wall street journal stories says companies are changing how health care will be a provided to their employees. they will give their workers a fixed amount of money and allow them to choose their own medical company. consumer spending saw the largest rise in 2011 suggesting customers are spending more at restaurants, clothing, and for health care. we will look at what the labor department found out. but we want to talk to you about your spending habits as they stand today. are you spending more, and if you are tell us why. if you want to reach out to us on social media, @cspanwj for twitter. you can always send us an e- mail. here is a story yesterday and "the wall street journal." the labor department said all areas rose last year. we will see a little bit more o
last october. mostly because of concern about the fiscal cliff. we could see major cuts in defense spending. given it gets 70% of its sales from the department of defense you can see why people would be nervous. however, i think those worries might be baked into the stock at those levels. it might be exaggerated. plus xls sports a juicy 4% yield. even if the worse does happen they're paying you to wait for washington to sort itself out. the other thing it represents a niche area within the budget. it's not one of those big old cold war programs that they have. i don't know if we should even be that worried. among the other things the company makes is highly secure communication systems, energy annal just, warfare systems, night vision goggles. it also has an information technical side where they do everything from aircraft traffic management for the faa and networks. that's probably less sensitive to the budget cuts we're all so worried about. last quarter was quite strong. if we don't fall off the fiscal cliff this could be the right stock to own. even if we do smash into the fisc
. a footnote, this might be a pyrrhic victory for the defense if they win because even if they win with the summers issue, the government can still argue that it was a legitimate, they had a reasonable suspicion, and, therefore the evidence obtained could still be admissible. i was asked to talk about another case which is a case -- >> why don't you take a minute and a half? >> maryland vs. king, and the question is here to the liberty of the state and federal laws that allow for the collection of swabs of cells from the insides of mouths of people who have been arrested. there as 27 states who have laws allow officers to swab the inside of any mouth of anybody arrested, and that gets put into the system who helps to identify the person, but also connect them to other crimes. in this case in maryland, king was arrested for burglary, swabbed, it comes back with a hit for a case involving rape. the court of appeals ultimately found it should have been suppressed, thereby invalidating the law in maryland which is the law in 26 other states allowing that swabbed people are arrested. th
ballot requests to quote bureaucratic inner shaw at the department defense. >> they do well keeping us safe. sometimes with the social issues it doesn't have the motivation it has with other issues. they are focused on keeping america safe. i get that. >> state by state surveys show absentee ballot requests were less than half of the 2008 total. in virginia they are at 1 percent of the 2008 level. in ohio and north carolina this year's request were one-tenth of those four years ago. the dod relies on sketchy data in this regard. the pentagon has not spent the estimated 15-20 million dollars per year needed to establish the voting assistance offices that dod is required by law to set up at all installations. the record told fox news that it complies fully with the loss. >> it is the best it has ever been. we have all of the different methods and means at our disposal. we have the great web site with on-line that will walk folks through. we have a download. >> listen up it's not too late to request, e receive and cast your absentee ballot. go to sazp.gov or hero's vote.org. hero's vote.o
is the technology. i am curious to your view of the effects of missile defenses with to have a lot of different arms control. >> it is good to see you. a picture of arms control over the next few years, from the perspective of president obama, and he has made no secret of the fact of his initiative that he is eager to pursue step-by-step in reductions of nuclear weapons. that is one priority goal for this administration. it is a preamble to the start treaty. it is a goal they have both articulated. i think we will be looking for ways to accomplish those for the reductions. it laid out three goals for the next round of negotiations. he said we want to seek reductions in non-strategic nuclear weapons, non-deployed nuclear-weapons, and for the reductions and deploy nuclear weapons. to those three categories are new to the arms reduction process. we've always gone after weapons that are deployed on their delivery vehicle. this is what we have always counted and reduced. this is what you can see even from overhead satellites. it is important to recognize the next age of arms control but president obama h
in defense cuts over the next 10 years. the department of defense estimated that president obama's defense cuts could result in as many as 1.5 million jobs lost. what can president obama to win the veteran vote? when you are talking about numbers like that in this economy. >> it is important to point out ryan budget cuts veterans benefits by 13%. it is important for the president to emphasize what he has done for the military and veterans, whether it is aid for military families or whether it is increasing benefits for veterans or his post 9/11 g.i. bill there's a strong record he has to try on and he should tuck about that. >> heather: trey what about those numbers? >> you will not be able to convince veteran vote there's republicans are not going to stand up for them. they will be there for him, they know regardless of the budget cutting republicans are proposing which is much needed in this town in terms of the waste, fraud, abuse or unnecessary spending that they are going to be there for our military that has never been a question. >> heather: defense secretary panetta says the cuts w
in the department of defense for managing the supply chain and then all of a sudden decide that you are going to apply that single solution to everything the department of defense by is. we wouldn't people to buy anything if that were the case. >> the only thing i would add is the trusten suppliers of objects but also as melissa referred to in her talk those that support those things the trust that might install or maintain them as well. >> i think we are talking about multiple definitions of a trusted supplier to the if you look at it from the business point of view, many of the supply years have to go through a set of requirements that means whatever those security brandt integrity of the overall company whether it's a background investigation the companies have to go through to supply to other companies to meeting all of the legal requirements, for example the corruption act for mean osha standards and i'm just citing the ones in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a a
or the national security. 90% of jobs in virginia, from the defense industry -- 19% of jobs in virginia. we have put forward solutions that did not aggravate a bad economy. we do not want to raise taxes. >> if there is a split decision, each party will have to compromise to avoid taking the country over the cliff. what compromises the believe your own party will have to make to walk the country back from the precipice? >> we have to get control over spending. we have to keep certain financial commitments -- social security, medicare, medicaid. the defense budget is bloated. we have a bigger defense budget than other countries. people against our national security interests are called terrorists. those are the people i was pursuing when i was mobilized after 9/11. that doesn't mean we need to lose those jobs. first he supported a sequester and then he didn't. it is to blame game. what need to do is take a scalpel and look at the outsourcing of our defense. we need to make sure we're not sending things to halliburton and places like that. the defense department should be able to support itself. th
and hasn't given us spiecifics, lets be fair. >> mitt romney is the defense lawyer in the courtroom, he's going to say the prosecution, president obama, hasn't made his case, his record isn't enough for re-election and i'll not give all the details of what i'll do, what a romney presidency would mean, make your choice based on the president, that's your plan? >> what is the plan is that the public will have plenty of detail and information to make a judgment on governor romney and what his plan is for the future. but let's look at what the president is saying as well. you're right, the president has had four years to lay this out and now a campaign. and the president just trying to run out the clock. he desperately wants to run out the clock with platitudes which sound nice and i give him that. the president is very good at that. but in the end, i think that both sides have to look at this campaign and say, what are we going to lay out over the next 36 days and that's i think what's really important. and i think governor romney will lay out some very important points over the next 36 da
, that professor reported the threats and holmes was banned from campus as a result. defense attorneys say those accusations of threats are false. >>> but police confirm today the gunman behind a deadly workplace shooting in minneapolis had been played off hours before opening fire. another person died today raising the death toll to six now which includes the shooter who took his own life. the company's founder was among the dead. >>> coming up on 9news arnold schwarzenegger promises to tell all in his new autobiography. >> what does maria think about the memoir and bringing this all up? >> i think maria is wishing me well with everything i do. >> more from the 60 minute interview when we come back. krystal conwell : we see a lot of problems with the... number of students that we have. resources. materials. things that the children need... on a day-to-day basis. anncr: question seven will help. the department of legislative services says question seven... will mean hundreds of millions of dollars... for schools...from gaming revenues that would have... gone to other states. and independent audi
as little as $17,000 a year will then will be put in jeopardy, the hundreds of thousands of defense and technology jobs, and in my view, the men and women in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to raise taxes on job creating small businesses. >> when you eliminate deductions, would you do that for everyone or high income earners? >> first, i'll point out the last rhetoric about taking veterans hostage on economic issues. that's exactly the kind of name calling we've got too much of in washington. we can debate policies, but that's the name calling we've seen too much in washington, and what's wrong with washington is not going to be fixed by more of that. now, back to the issue. george talked about his tax proposal. he was a u.s. senator. he was a senator for six years. during his time in the senate, his fiscal policies turned masses surpluses into massive deficits. the federal deficit went up $16,000 every second george allen was the united states senator. voted to raise the debt ceiling four times, voted to raise his own salary four times. now he's

[cheers and applause] we also believe, and in the live free or die state, we know we want to be free to choose our own medical care, and in order to do that, we have to repeal and replace obama care. the choice is clear. we can either stick with the failed policies of the last four years for the next four years, which gives us a stagnant economy and fosters government dependency, or we can fix these problems, bring the leadership that we are sorely lacking, and that have dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity, upward mobility, self-sufficiency, and economic growth. higher take-home pay, a stronger middle class. getting people out of poverty, bk to the middle class, and growing economic security. this is do-able. this is right in front of us. we can do this. you know, this election is not just about these material issues. this election is about the fiber of our society. this election is ab

to the department of defense, quote, we are committed to working together to help forge a balanced bipartisan deficit reduction package to avoid damage to our national security, important domestic priorities, and our economy. joining us now from manchester, new hampshire one of the gang's members, democratic senator j n jeanne shaheen. great to have you on the program. >> mice to be with you. i would say, alex, it's not a new gang of six, i think but it does reflect a number of different groups that have been meeting and talking in the senate about the need to address sequestration, and i was part of the six of us who signed that letter in talking about what we could do to try and reassure the public, to reassure the markets, that we understand we've got to address this problem and we've got to do it in a way that provides certainty for businesses, for consumers, so that we have a long-term solution. >> senator, i want to get your thoughts, it is, i think, laudable that this is a bipartisan gang, as other gangs have been. four of the gang members, for lack of a better term, voted for the bud
. and in my defense -- [laughter] i would just like to say, you know, whatever, okay? [laughter] it was basic cable, all right? you don't pay extra for cnn. [laughter] and everything. no, it was somewhat more informed decision than it. i thought the law was going to be overturned based on the oral arguments in part, because in my experience and rehnquist and roberts court this is not accord with the they play a lot of devils advocate. they use oral arguments. their questions to make their case to the colleagues, and it sure looked to me during most of the arguments that the five conservatives were very much leaning against the obama administration on the key argument in the case, which was uzbek commerce clause of article one of congress to pass the individual mandate. which says individuals have to get health insurance. and as i sat in court on june 28 and heard chief justice roberts announce his decision in the case, i learned the edge to the question, which was no, it doesn't. the commerce clause does not allow the court, the congress to invoke an individual mandate. but then any decision
grants. one is in the same-sex marriage cases, the defense of marriage cases and the proposition 8 cases and the other is in the voting rights cases. both of these are likely to be taken on by the courts. we don't know how they will play out because they have not to grant uncertainty in these cases yet. i think they also share some interesting aspects, and those on the relationship between the state and a federal government. first, to turn to the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 cases -- i will talk about doma cases for it. first, for some history on doma, it was passed in 1996 and has two main sections from only one is really at issue in section 2 is about trying to protect states from being forced to recognized marriage in other states. the section that deals with the defense of marriage for federal purposes, federal law, federal taxes, a whole host of bedroll laws. it says, for the purpose of federal law, the word marriage means of a legal union between one man and one woman, husband and wife, and spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the
administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world in terms of explaining what happened. virtually every
in the campaign in a defensive posture, which is problematic. >> mark, is that the reason that the conversation was avoided? we heard so many times that governor romney would describe bain and his role there and the value of that company. we know it's private equities. we know how that game works, at least to some degree. none of us are wall street men and women in the conversation, but we know the realities of private equity. is this tape or some of the vision for bain capital the very reason we didn't hear him solidly defend that record because his vision was to harvest the profits of some of these companies they went in? >> well, i don't think we really know the reality, because we haven't had the longer discussion. we have a perception about them very shorthanded as mitt romney was doing in that tape. he was shorthanding what parlt of their business objective is. as part of that business objective, they saved weak companies. by saving weak companies, those companies didn't go out of business. they did, in fact, save lots of jobs that probably would have -- that would have been lost because
of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to the sequester. i'm not sure he knows that paul ryan voted for that sequester or that at this point wars are the way you make new veterans if he's threatening new wars in iran and syria the way he's been so
before about how obama has that tendency sometimes anyway when he's on the defensive to come off as a little kocondescending. how much of debate prep is hones in on an appropriate attitude and tone to take, and how do you fix that? >> you're exactly right. there's a fine line to walk there. those are my points. i wouldn't necessarily say exactly get out of being president. the point is to at once convey the seriousness and the clarity of purpose and the sense of command that americans expect from their president while at the same time being accessible and not arrogant and being frankly okay with being questioned, being okay with being challenged. >> do you admit to mistakes? is that a good tactic in debates? >> i think you do if they're mistakes you believe you ought to admit to. you know, it's an odd hypothetical to answer. i mean, i ran the edwards campaign. edwards said the vote for the iraq war was a mistake. that was probably a good thing for him to do. does that mean carte blanche? no. >> of course not, no. >> jonathan, quickly your former speech writer for president clinto
and pundits who watch the oral argument of that case and said, in my defense, i would just like to say, whatever, okay? [laughter] it was basic cable, all right? [laughter] you don't pay extra for cnn. >> no, it was somewhat more informed of a position on that. it looked to me during most of the arguments that the five conservatives were very much leaning against the obama administration on the key argument in the case. which is does the commerce choir in turn caused allow congress to pass the individual mandate. which says that individuals have to get health insurance. as i sat in court and heard him make the decision, i thought, the commerce clause does not allow the congress to invoke the individual mandate. john roberts mentioned a subsidiary argument that had been mentioned in passing. individual mandate was a permissible use of the taxing power of congress and not the commerce clause and thus the law can be upheld. i think that there were three main reasons. the first was i think you have to take things at face value and that would be a legitimate use of it. the second and third,

[applause] in the live free or die state, we know this to be true. we want to be in control of our own health care. to do that, we have to repeal and replace obamacare. [applause] the choice is clear. we can either stick with the failed policies of the last four years for the next four years, which gives us a stagnant economy and foster's government dependency, or we can fix these problems. we can bring the leadership we are lacking and have a dynamic, growing economy that produces opportunity, upward mobility, and self-sufficiency, and economic growth. higher take-home pay, a stronger middle-class, and getting people out of poverty and back into the middle class growing economic security. this is doable. we can do this. this election is not just about material issues. this election is about the fiber of our society. this election is about the kind of people we will be and the kin
